Christian Atsu scored an incredible free-kick last night – and he’s winning off the field too with his stunning wife. The Ghanaian, 25, fired Newcastle to a 2-0 victory away to Cardiff City to keep them in touching distance of Championship league leaders Brighton.
He even won man of the match in the Friday night clash. Atsu is still technically a Chelsea player but has yet to make a league appearance for the Blues. His wife, Marie-Claire Rupio, was on the sidelines last night cheering on her man and the couple are inseparable.
The 22-year-old met the Ghana international during his loan spell at Rio Ave in 2011 and they got married the next year. They regularly post cute family pics on Instagram and Twitter of themselves and their two young sons.
The German, who is a hair and make up artist, revealed Atsu is passionate about charity.
